Wild to have mascot?

Blah. I hate mascots. let me say that up front. Mascots, good for little kids, but I just don't see the point in having one. I don't know if the Ducks still have one, but I remember seeing a game in Anaheim with the Ducks' mascot "Wild Wing" swinging from the rafters. I was like, "what? Is this still a hockey game?" I just think they are pointless, and don't see a reason why the Wild would waste all the PR money to create one. Moreover, our team name is the "Wild," how do you create a catchy mascot name from that?

That said, the Wild will name their new mascot October 8th.
